Time to bring back McCarthy.

Indeed.

Drawing on primary sources—including never-before-published government records and FBI files, as well as recent research gleaned from Soviet archives and intercepted transmissions between Moscow spymasters and their agents in the United States—Evans presents irrefutable evidence of a relentless Communist drive to penetrate our government, influence its policies, and steal its secrets. Most shocking of all, he shows that U.S. officials supposedly guarding against this danger not only let it happen but actively covered up the penetration. All of this was precisely as Joe McCarthy contended.

How did such people form? How did this nation sink to the level that slime like these socialist even exist?

The answer to your question lies in what happened to the education system. We removed the Bible and allowed in people like Bill Ayers who infested the education system with Marxism.

“The philosophy of the classroom in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next.”

– President Abraham Lincoln

The most important business in this Nation–or any other nation, for that matter-is raising and training children. If those children have the proper environment at home, and educationally, very, very few of them ever turn out wrong. I don’t think we put enough stress on the necessity of implanting in the child’s mind the moral code under which we live.

The fundamental basis of this Nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don’t think we emphasize that enough these days.

If we don’t have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.

President Harry S. Truman

    Hi:

    I hope you read this comment. I would have emailed you, but saw no link. I thought I should tell you that I used your statement about education and religion to write a post at my blog. I did not intend to disrespect you and I hope you do not see it that way, but I do not agree with your assessment and wanted to continue a few thoughts I’ve been developing this past week. I read your comments at Leo’s site and your posts here whenever I can.

    respectfully,

    cats

  2. cats,

    I welcome respectful and intelligent debate. What I don’t like is when others attack the person (ad hominem attacks) instead of attacking the argument. I do not mind your respectfully disagreeing with me. I’ll even provide a direct link to your post:

    Civics, not Religion, is what is needed in our schools.

    I don’t have a lot of time to blog today (lots of family activities going on this weekend), but I would ask that you consider the educational environment in this country at the time that our country was founded. How were the founders who wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution educated?

    They were taught to read using The New England Primer and the Bible.

    The universities at that time were all founded to raise up Christian leaders for the benefit of both the church and the state. Harvard’s motto was “Christo et Ecclesiae”, “For Christ and the Church.” What changed? See my earlier post: Demoralization in America’s Universities.

    No one was ever forced to be a Christian, but there was no doubt among our founders, nor among the Supreme Court all the way up until the late nineteenth century (see the 1892 case of Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States), that this nation was founded as a Christian nation (a nation of predominantly Christians).

    President George Washington understood the importance of protecting individuals’ freedom of religion. He also understood the importance of true religion to our government. He knew that religion and morality are indispensable supports to our government. He said:

    While just government protects all in their religious rights, true religion affords to government its surest support.

    and

    Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.
